The Chesapeake Bayhawks hosted three other Major League Lacrosse teams at a scrimmage day Saturday at Severn. The Charlotte Hounds, Denver Outlaws and Florida Launch traveled to the Severna Park private school for one last test before next weekend's season openers. Each team played two three-quarter games. Chesapeake coach Dave Cottle had mixed feelings after watching the Bayhawks defeat Florida, 11-5, and lose to Denver, 8-5. "Right now, I think we are an average team. I didn't see anything out there today that made me think we're a good team at this point, but we'll keep working to get there," Cottle said. The two-time defending champion Bayhawks were without numerous key players, including starting attackman Drew Westervelt (John Carroll, UMBC), top long-stick defensive midfielder Jesse Bernhardt (Maryland) and starting goalkeeper Kip Turner (Severn), as well as high-scoring midfielders Peet Poillon (UMBC) and Joe Walters (Maryland). Westervelt and Walters are among several Bayhawks still playing professionally indoors in the National Lacrosse League. Bernhardt, Turner and Poillon are assistant coaches at Maryland, Brown and Hobart, respectively. Attackman Brendan Mundorf (Mount St. Joseph, UMBC), acquired from Denver in an offseason trade, scored two goals and had three assists in the victory over the Launch. Veteran attackman Ben Rubeor (Loyola High) led all scorers in the Florida game with four goals. Tyler FioritoT.C. DiBartoloBruce Bickford

Salisbury drops first game since May 2012 in 12-8 loss
The Salisbury women's lacrosse team, ranked No. 1 in Division III, suffered its first first loss since May 2012 in its regular-season finale, falling, 12-8, to undefeated and second-ranked SUNY Cortland. The host Red Dragons outshot the Sea Gulls (16-1) by 16-3 in the first half, and attacker Erica Geremia's game-high-tying four goals led Cortland (15-0) to a 9-2 lead at the break. Attackers Shelby Nemecek (Liberty) and Kate Haker (Westminster) scored for Salisbury in the second half, with Nemecek scoring three of her four goals and Haker putting in two of her three during the comeback attempt. A goal from midfielder Bethany Baer (Westminster) with 4:20 remaining brought the score to 12-8, but that was as close as the Sea Gulls got. Salisbury had a 9-6 shooting advantage in the last 30 minutes, but Red Dragons goalkeeper Liz Ingalls made three saves to help contain the rally.

Alex Moore Annie Ruland The Trojans (8-7, 6-3 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation) led the Cardinal (12-3, 6-2) by as many as three goals in the first half, but the lead changed four times after the break.
Hopkins becomes oldest boxer to unify major titles
Using technical expertise, guile and a healthy dose of showmanship, International Boxing Federation light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins, 49, became the oldest fighter to unify major world titles by beating Beibut Shumenov via split decision with a knockdown to claim the World Boxing Association belt early Sunday morning at the D.C. Armory. Already the oldest athlete to own a world championship, Hopkins added a second straight title defense against his 30-year-old Kazakh opponent. Hopkins did the most damage in the 11th round when he caught the 2004 Olympian with a straight right that sent Shumenov to the mat. Jimmy Lennon Jr. Shawn Porter Paulie Malignaggi

College baseball: No. 25 Georgia Tech exploded in the 12th inning with seven runs for a 13-6 win over Maryland, which had won the first two games of the series by a combined score of 11-3. After the host Terps (24-14, 9-11 Atlantic Coast Conference) scored in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game at 6, five innings passed without a run. Then three Maryland pitchers combined for three walks, three hits and a wild pitch as the Yellow Jackets (25-16, 11-10) more than doubled their score. … UNC-Wilmington (19-19) scored seven runs over the third and fourth innings and kept ahead for an 11-8 win over Towson (17-17), sweeping a series shortened to two games because of inclement weather Saturday. First baseman Peter Bowles led the visiting Tigers with two runs, including one during a five-run second inning that gave Towson a 5-1 lead, and two RBIs.
